You can right click on "Computer" and go to "Properties" and the subsequent page that opens, will show you the brand and model of your CPU, assuming your computer is running.

If it is not, please tell us what the situation is.


All is well in Paradise.

If you know the motherboard manufacturer and model...just use Google to find the specs.

 

If you don't know the board manufacturer and model...then the Speccy tool (as suggested) may help.

 

If it's an OEM system (HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc.) then you need to visit the OEM website and take a look at the support webpage, manuals, etc.  If it's OEM and you know the model, you can just post it here and someone will look up the specs.
